‘Local Hero’ – a campaign to raise awareness of the environmental threat of planned Sizewell nuclear station

TEAGS 11th Jan 2019 Locals and campaigners create ‘Sizewell Hero’ – a tribute to the film
‘Local Hero’ – to launch a new online campaign, urging EDF to change
its approach. Theberton and Eastbridge Action Group on Sizewell [TEAGS]
today launched a new video and online campaign.

Made by local people, it is aimed at increasing awareness and concern about the impacts of the proposed Sizewell C&D nuclear power station to audiences beyond east Suffolk. EDF
launched its Stage 3 consultations on the twin-reactor development last
week. ‘Sizewell Hero, hosted on YouTube and Facebook, is a three-minute
homage to the award-winning 1980s film ‘Local Hero’, and shows a
company executive transformed and inspired by the beauty of Minsmere and
the coast at Sizewell to think again about the company’s plans.

The video is entirely a local initiative, starring Middleton actor Simon Bridge and
featuring other residents from Theberton and Middleton. The film was shot
and produced by Steve Sutton and crew from UK Aerial Photography Ltd, based
in Peasenhall. Permission to use the famous ‘Local Hero’ theme music
was kindly granted by Mark Knopfler’s management, Crockford Management
and the project was made possible by a grant from Lush Charity Pot. Stills
and ‘making of’ photos are available.
